    SilverlightShow Page for all Silverlight and Windows Phone 7 (WP7) things on TwitterTim Heuer has posted some videos that will help you undestand some of the new features coming with Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2.

    Source: Method ~ of  ~ failed

    In the release of Visual Studio 2010 Feature Pack 2 one feature that might be interesting to Silverlight developers is the introduction of support for the coded UI test framework and Silverlight 4 applications, specifically:

      • Use Microsoft Test Manager to capture and playback action recordings for Silverlight 4 applications
      • Create coded UI tests for Silverlight 4 applications with Visual Studio 2010 Premium or Ultimate

    This article is Part 8 of the series WCF RIA Services:

    1. Getting Started with WCF RIA Services
    2. Querying Data Through WCF RIA Services
    3. Updating Data Through WCF RIA Services
    4. WCF RIA Services and MVVM
    5. Metadata Classes and Shared Code in WCF RIA Services
    6. Validating Data with WCF RIA Services
    7. Authenticating and Authorizing Calls in WCF RIA Services
    8. Debugging and Testing WCF RIA Services Applications
    9. Structuring WCF RIA Services Applications 
    10. Exposing Additional Domain Service Endpoints for Other Clients


    In this article, I am going to focus on two aspects that are just as important as how to write the code – how to write the code in such a way as to be more testable, and how to debug and diagnose when your code is not doing exactly what you expect.

    In this new video, Victor Gaudioso is demonstrating how to do Silverlight HitTesting.

    I was playing around and making a Silverlight game and I realized I needed to do hit detection, that is know when one object hit another. After some searching I came accross Andy Beaulieu’s blog where he writes about how to do it in a very effective way. I show how to implement Andy’s solution in this new video.

    Jeff Wilcox has published the updated quasi-official unit test framework bits for Silverlight 3 and Windows Phone developers.

    This brings the new features from the Silverlight 4 version to developers who have a business reason to continue with Silverlight 3 development for the time being:

    • Updated user interface
    • Integrated “tag expression” support for selecting subsets of tests to run
    • Performance improvements
    • Removal of dependencies on XLinq and System.Windows.Browser assemblies

    Jeff Wilcox announces that the new release of the Silverlight Toolkit for targeting Microsoft Silverlight 4 contains a new version of the Silverlight Unit Test Framework.

    The user interface no longer uses the antiquated HTML DOM bridge for displaying results, but now is a data bound, rich Silverlight application itself.

    • Xml report output.
      • By giving the tool the -r=<FilePath.xml>. StatLight will write out an xml report of the test run.
    • Update to the Silverlight 3.0 Runtime – Should be compatible with Silverlight 2.0 assemblies.
  • RandomProvider to generate random values for UI and Unit Testing

    0 comments  /  posted by  Beat Kiener  on  Aug 27, 2009 (more than a year ago)

    Beat Kiener has implemented a RandomProvider class to generate random values for different needs.

    Currently I’m working on a large Silverlight project where we often need random values for testing purpose during UI development or unit testing.

    Recently I’ve implemented a RandomProvider class to generate random values for different needs such as simple values like int, short, long, byte, DateTime, Timespan, Thickness, string as well as complex types such as words, addresses, phone numbers, company names, email adresses, names and so on.

    A few days ago, Terence Tsang launched a new site “Silverlight Resources Directory”. However, in order to attach more visitors from the search engine, he needs this new Silverlight site to be SEO (Search Engine Optimization) friendly. 

    Previously, I thought that the Navigation framework in Silverlight 3 is able to help me to index the pages in my Silverlight application. However, I was wrong. Frame and Navigation only help me to integrate with the browser hash value and it’s not related to SEO.

    Therefore, I do something wise. I studied a lot about how Flash do SEO and come up a very simple solution.

  • Testing Silverlight from Windows Live Writer

    In this post Corey Schuman gives some clues and an example on how to test Silverlight from Windows Live Writer.

    Admittedly, I don’t have a single post that has an embedded Silverlight app. The root of the my problem is the lack of support for embedding Silverlight into Windows Live Writer (WLW).  It’s possible, with Wordpress, to embed Silverlight through the web interface, but WLW’s features outweigh what the web dashboard can do (namely pasting in screen shots without having to save them to the file system and then upload).

  • Testing C# Silverlight Apps with IronRuby

    In this post Jimmy Schementi doesn't use the Silverlight unit test framework, but rather some nice dynamic language test goods. As an example he is testing a calculator on steroids.

    IronRuby makes it really easy to test .NET applications because of it's .NET integration and ability to run real Ruby programs, like RSpec. However, this becomes much more difficult to do in Silverlight for a variety of reasons. And Silverlight doesn't have good options for testing to begin with, except for the Silverlight Unit Test Framework, but I yearn for something simpler. This post will show you how to test a C# Silverlight application with IronRuby, using a testing framework called Bacon, a lightweight RSpec clone.
